From what I understand from reading the NETRA rules is that there are a few differences.
1. A rider receives a new "minute" if he doesn't arrive on time at a check.
2. There isn't any "free territory" in Brand X. So the checks can be anywhere on the course unlike AMA where they have to be at least 3 miles apart.
3. If a rider comes in to a check earlier than 5 minutes he is suspended. I think AMA is 15 minutes.
